    Have not read this thread since September 2017. Hit the "go to first unread post" button to be brought to @A-Rob 's second last post and my heart sank! I got chills and felt sick. I had, for just a split second, thought that Rodgers, only just after signing his extension, goes and gets a season ending injury!! Im still no over it................ Phew! Cant wait for this season to get going. Pack start with the Bears on SNF. Probably the best time for the Bears to play em. As always Ill be hoping Rodgers has a magic season to get the second ring he fully deserves, but will the supporting actors step up to the plate? AR with functioning TEs could be scary........If not it will be "Anyone but Brady" as per...........
  2. Thats a whole load of "whatifry" right there......... What if the 2017/18s Man Utd traveled back in time and won the league in 2015/16?? WTF? Stop........Utd were not good enough in 2016 (along with 18 other teams), not good enough last year (along with 18 other teams) and are not looking so hot this year thus far.
  3. If a team wins a title without a core of 4/5 top performing players in that given season then that team IMO is an exception to the rule. You would be hard pressed to find many league winning teams/squads that did not possess such. Yes, luck plays a big part in winning things, no doubt, but you also have to take advantage of that luck when it comes your way.
  4. They didn’t do just as well. They did not win the league. An equivilent points tally in a totally different season does not equate to an equivalent performance.
  5. What’s that got to do with anything?
  6. Good result for Spuds. That’s a massive confidence injection Media are going to go to town on the “crisis” at Utd
  7. Must win for Jose tonight already?
  8. What ever happens with Trump its going to make one hell of a Netflix/Amazon Prime documentary!
  9. Thats if we even get to the next election. We are not even halfway through this term and it could be deemed that Trump is on the ropes currently. It would be hilarious if his presidency ended with him leaving the White House in cuffs. Yeah, that may be still far fetched in some ways, but its not as far fetched as it once was.
  10. Utds goals against in the league were on a par with Citehs last season. So by your logic if Citys keeper is better than Utds it would suggest that the defenders in front of him are worse than Utds or why is he conceding as much as DDG............Would you say that? Are Citys defenders worse than Utds? Hmm? Or would DDG of had to put up with worse defending in front of him at Utd last season? The reason City were so far ahead of Utd last season was not their goal keeper fella. Not even a factor. It was what City did going forward. Banging in 30-40 goals more than your nearest rival is a major difference maker. Not conceding 1 less goal.
  11. Comes across has if he and the other senior players had little or no respect for Moyes from the get go. They seem to have acted unprofessionally and unrealistically, thinking Moyes should do things like Ferg Face and not do things his way. Sounds like a load of dummy spitting, naive, thick thinking footballers if you ask me. They didnt give him the time of day. They didnt give him a fair shout. The senior players knew better and acted as such and put their egos above the club from what I can conclude.............I might be wrong of course, but it seems they all couldn't handle change and were not going to give it a fair crack of the whip
  12. Its obvious what Neil is getting at here and he is right to point it out. DDG not having a worldy is probably the equivalent of of 30-40 goals a year striker not scoring goals. If you are heavily reliant on those clean sheets/saves to generate points for the team then you will have potential issues if they dry up. It points to there being issues elsewhere in the team/club, not an issue with DDG himself. I think we all know that Utd without DDG over the last few years would have been in some proper serious shit/trouble. The guy has been top top class and done some really wonderful things worthy of winning 3 points alone..........if he was to go on and have a "normal" season then the rest of that squad and that manager are under even more pressure to perform.
  13. 30m is nothing to Utd. That wont stop them from getting rid if they want to. Pride may. If Jose wants the sack sure we will all know very soon..........
  14. That finish by Costa was ridiculous! Oof!
  15. I dont think you are even close to getting what you would like to see happen. Too many politicians are using Brexit as a political football, so you will most likely not see a major party row in behind "remain" in a manifesto if a GE was called. Didnt the vast majority of MPs support remain? But one would hardly think such the way things have panned out since. Where are all those remainers voices these days? Hiding behind the "will of the people", too scared to pipe up? Sure Brexit means Brexit and thats that, eh? You will be waiting a very long time for the politicians to be brave enough to call a GE and stand behind remain in their manifesto. Easier for them to assess opinion polls on Brexit and begin calling for some form of new "in/out" referendum if polls support such and if they feel it can be politically survivable to do so..........The lag between what public opinion (may) reflect and the time politicians are brave enough to commit to something in a manifesto is too long IMO and that is time this whole Brexit process may not have Best thing for it at this stage IMO is that Brexit gets uglier and uglier, fueling public outrage and fear and the calls for some form of referendum from the public sphere becomes deafening.
  16. Not necessarily true. Many may and would have voted for the Tories in that election not even thinking of a potential Brexit poll. A GE is not (usually) a one issue vote and Im sure a lot of voters did not go to the polls that day thinking of voting for Cameron and his buddies and hoping for Brexit. Public opinion can and does change. Politicians already try to take advantage of that when incumbents call GEs at times they believe suit them. If the public opinion around Brexit shifts to a significant majority wanting another say on the issue then they should be afforded that without the farting about with a GE. Anyway another GE could make waters muddier. Look what happened last time.........
  17. But then you are telling people to vote for a party they may not want to vote for for a multitude of other reasons. For example there may be people who simply never want to vote for labour as they are simply not their politics and never have been yet may want to remain and if Labour were the only viable option for a remain proxy vote in a GE then those voters are in somewhat of a pickle, no? From a democratic perspective surely if it takes a referendum to do something it should take a referendum to alter that, no? What democratic issues does putting a referendum to the public raise BTW? They voted for something and that thing is currently "happening", but if they dont like whats happening surely its very democratic that they get their chance to say such, no? Thats how GEs work.
  18. Thats an easy one for the simple way they think "Young, inexperienced manager gets England to first WC Semi since the ledge ball that was Bobby Robson CBE"
  19. 8-1 on PaddyPower. Barca are 7-1 for CL. May be worth a punt.
  20. Yeah, sure what Klopp says and does are two different things. Just ask Karius (Or Utd fans who like to quote him about spending/not spending money) As for DS specifically. He has one year left with the club and if he would like to get a half decent move with half decent pay he will need to show himself to be a very professional back up this year. Do that and he could be a solid squad member (if he stays injury free)...... Apparently his link up play with Kieta was note worthy last night, even if it was against Blackburn, so it would be great for the club if he could keep the head down, stay injury free and make a contribution this season
  21. Well if he thinks he is joining LFC to be playing in the first 11 more often than not then he might as well pack it in now. He must understand why he was brought in. Surely? And he must be happy/agreeable with that approach and the prospect of the level of opportunity he will potentially get. Id be very surprised if he thinks something different and spits out the dummy accordingly. And anyway if he does he will be removed quicker than he can say "Mamadou Sakho"
  22. Finish 4th or worse and there will be grumbles for sure. Needs to kick on and needs that elusive trophy at this stage. Will be interesting to see if they go back sniffing about Lyon and if they go for another defender too... If the players he has now click they could be a threat.
  23. The Pool secure Alisson thankfully. Now he better prove he is worth all that cash.... the amount Klopp is spending if they don’t improve and potentially challenge there will be awkward questions. A different type of pressure will rise....twill be interesting to see how it pans out..
  24. The Ox is out for the whole of the coming season.... poor bugger... what the feck did he do???
  25. Henderson is defo hot and cold. He had a pretty decent game against Sweden if memory serves. Blocked a defo goal for the Swedes at one point.
